I’ve just posted The Best Student Projects That Need Family Engagement — Contribute Your Lessons! over at my other blog, Engaging Parents In School.

I’ve love to compile a lengthy list of lessons teachers have used that have also required a high degree of parent engagement — where students have had to talk with family members and find out information from them; parents whom would not typically speak to a classroom come to share a particular expertise, etc. Of course, credit would be given.

  1. Hello Larry,

    While I love this idea I think it’s important to keep in mind that many children live in “non-traditional” families – they may live with grandparents, a single parent, foster parents, group homes, etc. I just hope that the list you compile will keep this in mind so that we can include all caretakers in these types of projects.
